‘When we considered that we’ve made the journey through better and worse and back to better and are now approaching 18 years of marriage, we are beyond overjoyed to continue to bring couples real discussion of life, love, family and faith.’ – Teddy and Tina Campbell
We have watched Mary Mary’s Tina Campbell and husband Teddy Campbell, fight struggle, break, forgive and heal. Mr. and Mrs Campbell lived their truth out loud on WeTv’s Mary Mary show. Now they are continuing their kingdom crusade to save marriages.
Marriages today are crumbling at a high rate — not because they no longer get along, but because they have lost sight of the blessing tied to a biblical marriage. Marriage is not merely a social contract; it is a sacred covenant. It is not simply a means of looking for love, happiness and fulfillment.
These things are important. In fact, they are critical. However, they are just not the most important, or the most critical.
Yet, because we have made second things first, as important as second things are, we are having trouble living out either. When God’s purpose and principles for marriage are undermined, then His image becomes distorted.
Kingdom couples must view marriage through God’s kingdom lens. That’s where Tina and Teddy come in. I have had the privilege of chatting with Tina many times over the last few years.
When I asked her how she and Teddy were doing these days, she seemed to light up. She sincerely is back in love with Teddy. It’s not imaginary. This is why their new site may just change lives, marriages and families. They are the ultimate redemption story. They are the proof of kindness and charity taking root within.
Although Teddy and Tina have spent almost two decades working as award winning music industry professionals (drummer/producers/singers/songwriters/author/reality TV personalities), the two have collaborated creatively in the last few years, touring as well as writing, producing, and recording, most notably on Tina’s award winning solo debut, It’s Personal. They have chosen to continue their team work, using their platforms together to advocate love, forgiveness, truth, accountability, healthy marriages, healthy families, and ultimately healthy faith.
Their new site WWW.TEDDYANDTINA.ORG will present an original fresh take on marriage and faith that needs to be heard.
The apostle Paul gave a similar directive when he wrote, “Let marriage be held in honor among all” (Hebrews 13:4). But what does it mean to honor marriage?
The word honor means to highly value something — to appreciate, cherish and recognize it as a priceless treasure. Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” This verse suggests that honor is primarily a matter of the heart. So in marriage, it involves recognizing the beauty and worth of your relationship with your spouse and then doing something to put that recognition and appreciation into action. It’s about dedication, heart and soul, to building strong foundational qualities into your marriage relationship. Teddy and Tina’s new blog promises to continue that vision that they have shared via their YouTube series ’10 Minutes With Teddy and Tina’.
It will only be a blessing to the kingdom.
